I've got a server with eight hot-swappable SATA drive slots. The server has a hardware RAID controller. Our data is stored on two sets of mirrored (RAID 1) drives. (The system drive is separate.)
Can I move those drives between this server and another server (say, if this main server goes down) and will all the data be accessible?
I'm thinking I could, but then the data won't be mirrored anymore. And then if I put the drives back in the main server, the data still wouldn't be mirrored.
I know I couldn't do this with RAID 0 or RAID 5 because the controller handles where all the data is written (right?), but on a pair of RAID 1 drives would that still be the case?
